Be Boho Chic - 4 Things You Need

A perennial favourite amongst fashion girls is the bohemian chic style. For some, nailing the trend is easy. These girls’ closets are full of fringe, posy prints and psychedelic patterns, and they're mixed in with lace and other Western-style wear. Other women have a harder time mixing and matching the right fabrics and pieces to create this “effortless,” yet carefully constructed, look dubbed boho chic.
This post is for those fashionista—the ones who love gazing at Free People campaigns and lust after Vanessa Hudgens’ OOTDs on the regular, but only from afar. After all, creating a flawless boho chic style is much harder than it looks. A keen eye is needed to combine feathers and lace without looking like you came straight from frolicking in the fields (unless you want to look like that, which is cool too!). But all it takes is a little practice, constant inspiration and the right pieces to make bohemian chic your own reality. To get you started, here are four things you need:

1. Lots of Earthy Colours CAMEL OOTD
The colour palette is crucial in the world of bohemia. The Chic Fashionista gives a quickrundown of the essential tones, stating, “Typical boho colours are rich and warm in colour. So focus on black, brown, cream white, khaki and olive green as your main fashion colour palette.” Once you have this basis, you can then mix in vibrant violets and deep reds.
2. Something With FringeSUEDE & CAMELWhether it is a bag, booties, a vest or even a suede jacket, you need something with fringe. Fringe is a telltale feature of Western-style garb that will immediately transport your style to another era. Not to mention, it’s a fun detail that moves with you. You can browse a whole host of fringed booties in Lyst’s edit if you’re looking for a little inspiration to get you started.
3. Something With FlowersFLORAL MAXI OOTDJust like you need fringe, flowers are just as, if not more, important when dressing bohemian chic. Since much inspiration is drawn from the “flower child” of the ‘60s, it’s only right that you find some floral. If not a floral-printed pair of pants, slip on a flower crown like Fashion Gone Rogue mentions: “the flower crown has become ubiquitous with bohemian style.”
4. Chunky JewelleryBLUE PAISLEYTo put the cherry on top to any whimsical, bohemian wardrobe, you’ll need the right accessories to match. College Fashion suggests chunky, earthy jewellery as one of the “must-have items” for girls looking to go boho chic. Leave the shiny gold at home, because wood and metal materials work best here. Also, “the more unique the better,” so feel free to get a little funky with your picks.
